    Looks like we need a new recovery, maybe there's something where the one we had for ICS came from.

    Also it looks like some verizon and lg processes ask for root permission, they seem to get denied automatically which i would think is a good thing. Havent seen that before but everything seems to be fine. I do wonder if it would cause issues if those apps would get root access granted.

    Edit: Found a working updated recovery: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/lg-spectrum-2/243091-recovery-spectrum-2-jelly-bean.html

    Nice, worked perfectly when the other method failed.

    No, it just hanged at the part you select on the phone to restore data.

    That sucks, glad I found this one. I went through quite a few trying to find one that worked. I'd say we're pretty lucky to have something so quick for JB. I didn't have high hopes.

    It is impressive, now if only we could get a ROM.

    I know and we're so close, we've got that one ROM that reverses the touchscreen. I feel like if we had a good developer on it it could be solved in no time. Once we got a base that worked I think that would open the door for us. I almost want to see if maybe a JB ROM for the LTE2 would work but without a way to fix the touchscreen if it gets reversed i'm not quite ballsy enough.

    The issue and it has been attempted by several Devs to solve is the bootloader is locked down tight. If and when that is cracked, flashing Roms will be easy but until that day we are stuck. :-(

    Yea, that would be ideal, but I believe the LTE2 Roms use 2nd-init which I would be more than happy with. Would just be stuck with the stock kernel. If the touch screen issue with the LTE2 2nd-init roms was resolved, that would be huge. It's like with the moto droid 2 and droid x (and im sure many others).. there were quite a few roms for those devices and the bootloader was never cracked while I owned those.
